How do you make an SUV, truck or big body sedan look better? The answer is quite simple: bigger wheels. There’s a wild notion that 22” rims negatively impact a vehicle’s performance. In reality, that statement only becomes true if the tire size isn’t well suited for a wheel of that size. We get it, not every enthusiast has performance oriented goals. Some people just want to rock a set of 22” staggered wheels on a stretched tire. That’s cool too, we don’t judge. At Curva Concepts, we understand this, and we are dedicated to providing our customers with expert wheel and tire fitment knowledge, no matter the application.
22” rims have been a part of the car culture for decades, and if memory serves you right, you know that they were super popular during the DUB-era. Back then, people would slap 22” wheels on damn near anything, from small sedans and coupes to massive SUVs; it didn’t matter. However, times and tastes have changed since then. But that doesn’t mean 22 inch rims aren’t relevant anymore. These days, custom 22” staggered wheels have a purpose, whether that’s on an SUV like the Ranger Rover HSE or on a big body sedan, like the BMW 7-Series.
You’re probably wondering if a set of staggered 22’s are beneficial for your car. Like we mentioned in the intro: they can play an important role in the performance of the vehicle. Or, you can just slam your car on air and stretch a tire on a 22” rim. The choice is yours, but whatever goal you have in mind for your ride, a wheel upgrade is the defining factor when it comes to overall aesthetic. Why? Well, manufacturers tend to roll cars off the lot with unaggressive widths and flat-faced profiles that don’t do the car any favors. And with the aggressive and sleek body lines cars have these days, do we really need to convince you? Sometimes it’s just straight up unflattering.
